Queen Elizabeth II was once spotted crying in public while she was with the Queen Mother.

In the documentary “Elizabeth R,” the monarch and her mom attended a horse race. Her Majesty’s horse, Enharmonic, failed to bring home the top spot. After placing fourth, the monarch couldn’t control her tears but she tried to deny that she was crying because of the loss.

While talking to the Queen Mother, Her Majesty said, “You know, I haven’t watched from a pair of binoculars for ages. I always watch it on television.”

The Queen Mother laughed at her eldest daughter and said that there were tears in her eyes because of her emotions. But the monarch said her tears were due to the strong winds.

“No mommy, it is looking with the wind like that,” she said.

But even though the Queen tried to cover up her tears at the horse race in 1991, there were several instances wherein she was unable to do so. There are a handful of photos of the monarch with tears in her eyes.

While at the Service of Remembrance in Westminster in 2002, the Queen was photographed crying. Years later, she was moved to tears at the service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire for fallen soldiers.

In 1997, the Queen’s eyes also welled up with tears after the Royal Yacht Britannia was decommissioned after 40 years of service. And when mom died in 2002, the Queen was once again photographed crying after leaving the chapel.

Royal fan Justin Mihalick also wrote on the online forum site Quora that the Queen cried after getting into an argument with Margaret Thatcher. Princess Margaret was the one who exposed details of the incident years ago.

The Queen’s younger sister passed away in 2002, which is the same year when the Queen Mother also passed away. Princess Margaret died on Feb. 9, while the Queen Mother died on March 30.
